    Mack Granite 6x4 dump truck

    @Ric079, I am glad you enjoy the truck. @Void_S did a great job (again) on the instructions. Any chance of photos?

    [WIP] Koenigsegg Jesko

    Wow, a 9 + R pneumatic gearbox . From the image you posted, you show the transmission. Could we have more information on this? Very interesting specs, can't wait to see progress on it!

    You are true there is a huge mix... Engine and interior from Anthem, Rear section from you . I am not a fast MOCer so I tend to prefer modifying existing things... Hard work has been done on getting accurate proportions (shorter hood, lower cabin, wider grill...) and I am quite happy with it. The 12t bevel gear is still here to power the salt spreader indeed. Just a few mods are needed to your design to fasten it (my tipper is 2 studs longer from memory).

    Mack Granite 6x4 dump truck

    Hi, @Void_S kindly created free PDF instructions. Feel free to build it and indicate any mistake . Here is the link Please note that this version is a bit different compared to the original LDD model.
  5. Oh wow, wonderfull MODs guys I think my favorite is @rm8's.
  6. I thought I was crazy Thank you for pointing it out! In my case, I observed that the tan 20t double bevel gear has more friction when put next to a beam than the old grey one... I didn't notice the different tooth design in the 20t clutch gear... I think I will use my old gears as much as possible in gearboxes...

    I personally hope this tendency will note appear for the 2020 ultimate... I am not really a fan of the Senna. In my opinion, there are other models which are much more appealing... But that is just my opinion

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    If the suspension arms are built well and the wheel hub connected properly, it is certainly the disk brake which is not completely inserted into the wheel hub. You should hear a "click".
  9. Ok . Indeed, motorizing it the other way could lead to gear lock as the gearbox is designed to run the engine thanks to the wheels and not the opposite. Looking forward to seeing your video!

    You are true @vectormatic. But you can have an efficient 8 speeds gearbox. It is the case of the McLaren 720s by @Charbel (I reproduced the chassis from photos and video) or even the Aston DB11 by @Jeroen Ottens which works really well (although being an 8 speed + DNR gearbox). Slack is very minimal in these MOCs.

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    It is an 8 teeth gear
  12. That is an offroader . And it should have enough power (gosh, 6L motors). Why did you keep the gearbox? Is it to demonstrate the effect on the fake engine revving?

    A little off-topic (sorry @Jim) I do understand the frustration of not having a B model because we were used to having one. But B models usually have influences on the A model (not optimal pin use, different beam colors, ...). From my point of view, having a single model enables to focus more on it, adding more specific details and optimize part use, making it more appealing. And I do have confidence in these guys building wonderful B models out there Going back to 42100, the new platform seems to work pretty well. I especially like the interface on the app where you can move the sections of the boom. It makes the controls easier for kids.
  14. Very nice details, I like it!

    Regarding the supercar, a Ferrari would be pretty cool, but the round curves can be very tricky to replicate depending on the inspiration model. As others mentioned, it could be an Aston Martin (the incoming Vantage?) or the successor of the Lamborghini Aventador. For the latter, I guess we will have information pretty soon. a functionality I would like to have is an active rear wing. Using a combination of a 2 speeds and a 4 speeds gearbox (to obtain a 8 speeds theoretically) could allow raising the wing when switching the higher gear on the 2 speeds gearbox (eg. raising on the 5th gear) The backhoe, if confirmed, sounds pretty interesting. I was too young (so had no money) when 8455 was realised. I have now another chance
